Continuing Students are those who have been enrolled at the college within the 12 months prior to the date of their return.
Step 1—Web Declare
Login to Camlink using your student ID number (C0XXXXXX) and your Camlink password. The first time you use Camlink your password is set as your birthdate in the following format MMDDYY. (Then you’ll get the opportunity to change your password.)
Once you are logged in, click on “Students” then click on “Web Declare” under “Registration”. Select the term in which you are planning to take courses and follow the steps until you get a registration date. This date is the first day that you will be able to access registration online.
Step 2—Pay your deposit
Pay your non-refundable $175.00 Registration Deposit at least 3 business days before your Registration Date. Funded students are responsible for ensuring that the Aboriginal Education & Community Connections office has received the appropriate sponsorship forms by this date. Please make an appointment to see an Aboriginal Advisor approximately two weeks before your registration date. This allows our office enough time to correspond with your sponsor.
- Pick up “Your Guide to Online Registration” booklet.
- Follow the instructions within to get registered.
- Register on or after your registration date, however, the earlier you get registered, the better, as classes can fill up quickly.
- If you require course-planning assistance, please make an appointment to see an Aboriginal Advisor.
Note to new students in Aboriginal programs or any Career programs: You are automatically registered in the first semester of studies in September only. After that, you need to register for each following semester. Although seats in these programs are reserved for you, this reserve eventually lifts, allowing other students to enroll in these classes.
Step 4—Pay your fees
Pay your fees, or ensure that your sponsorship is in by the published fee deadlines:
- Camosun calendar of events
- Annual Student Welcome Feast in September

Aboriginal Education has formed a strong relationship with the Counselling Centre at Camosun College. We recognize that life’s challenges have the potential to interfere with your success as a student. We understand that sometimes course content can touch students at a very personal level. As a college student, you may find yourself being faced with many changes in your life. There can be changes in friends, in surroundings, in courses, or in other areas of your life. You may also be presented with new challenges that may leave you feeling insecure, frustrated, or depressed. The Counselling Centre is a place where you can go to talk over your concerns with a qualified professional counsellor in a private confidential setting. Counsellors can assist you in managing personal difficulties, exploring career interests or improving opportunities for academic success.
Camosun offers many other services, supports and activities to help you succeed in and out of the classroom. Our goal is to provide you with the best learning experience possible.
